Afeltra Carta Paglia, Organic Linguine (2.2 lbs)


Linguine from Afeltra are made with the best durum wheat semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra uses only traditional bronze extruding machines which give the artisanal pasta a rough texture with many pores. These pores absorb the pasta sauce much better when finishing the dish. Afeltra Linguine are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture.

Linguine pasta takes the name from lingue, meaning tongues in Italian. This pasta has a long tongue-shaped similar to a Spaghetto but wider. This shape is used throughout Italy and pairs well with pesto genovese and shellfish sauces.
